If Z (1) and Z (2) are two pricing kernels, then for every F ∈ F 1A , E Z (1) 1F = E Z (2) 1F . Proof: For a discrete economy, the statement that X 1 is F1A -measurable is precisely the statement that X1 (ωi ) = X1 (ωj ) whenever A1 (ωi ) = A1 (ωj ). If this is the case we can identify any states ω i and ωj for which A1 (ωi ) = A1 (ωj ). The question of F1A -completeness becomes one of proving that this reduced economy is complete in the full sense. It is clearly arbitrage-free, a property it inherits from the original economy.

12) U0 = EP (ZU1 ) where Z is some pricing kernel for the economy. Note, in particular, that we can always take U 0 = 1, Q({ωj }) = 1/n and U 1 (ωj ) = 1/(nZj P({ωj })). 12) automatically holds (assuming a pricing kernel exists) when U is a derivative and thus is of the form U = φ · A. In this case we say that U is a numeraire and then we usually denote it by the symbol N in preference to U . In general there are more units than numeraires. The ideas of numeraires, martingales and change of measure are central to the further development of derivative pricing theory.

27 can hold. Let || · || denote the classical L2 norm ||X|| = (E[X 2 ])1/2 . s. equal, then ||X − Y || = 0 but, in general, X = Y . Hence || · || is not a norm on the space L2 . For this to be true we must identify any two random variables which are almost surely equal. Similarly here, we must identify any two martingales which are modifications of each other. In common with most other authors, we will do this without further comment whenever we need to. Appendix 2 contains a fuller discussion of the space L2 .
